Board of Trustees

HEBA is an association of churches first and foremost. It is also a charitable company with a Board of Trustees (the Directors of the Company) responsible for ensuring that the Association pursues its aims in a responsible way and in accord with charity and company law. This is done by the Board itself or through delegating tasks to working groups and staff.


We are seeking some new trustees and would be glad to received introductions from any of our member churches. The things prospective trustees need to know can be found on the document here: pdf
